Granola Bar Bites

A few weeks ago I got the new "Cookies for Everyone" book from the library. In it, I found a couple yummy-looking recipes for granola bars, something those of us with allergies often can no longer buy in the store. So, I tried my hand at one of their recipes, and it's quite tasty.

We love taking homemade granola bars for lunch - they are filling and we know what's in them!!!

Granola Bar Bites - Modified from Cookies for Everyone Cookbook

2 T oil
2 T brown sugar
2 T honey
2 T flax*
2 T water
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 C granola
1 C Enjoy Life Trail Mix (or more granola + dried fruit)
1 ripe banana, sliced (about 1/2 C puree)*
1/2 C rice flour*
2 T tapioca flour*

Cream together oil, brown sugar, honey, flax, water, banana and vanilla.

Mix in flour and cinnamon.

Stir in granola and trail mix.

Then, spoon into a greased 9x9 inch glass baking dish, or into mini-muffin tins.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Cool and cut into small bars.

*I used apples in place of the bananas, and used whole wheat flour, just 1/2 C, for the flax, and flours.
